It seems the excitement and exhaustion of the past few weeks have finally caught up with young Alia Bhatt. This weekend, the petite but ostensibly tireless scene-stealer was laid up with an exhaustion-induced fever.
Says a friend of the actress, "Shooting Highway was emotionally and physically grueling. Alia has been promoting Highway extensively all over the country. Even before the film was released, she was already promoting her next film 2 States. And that wasn't all. She was also shooting nights for Shashank Khaitan's Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya and simultaneously dubbing for 2 States. All of this multi-activity proved too much for 20-year old girl."
"She has been advised to rest it out. She's a livewire and cannot rest easy. You won't find Alia in the same place for more than five minutes. But for now, she's taking it easy," says the friend.
